The unit was spacious and very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. The view was beautiful and the neighbor next door was great. The movie selection was awesome. Would definitely rent again.

This place was exactly what I was looking for... the stains on the bed sheets, the slow Wi-Fi, the bad customer service, the slow elevators, lots of door slamming, neighbors shuffling around, and you can feel the floor of the building move. Wow what an experience! And they like to charge you for the previous damages that were already there.

This is our third stay at Tidewater. We have seen improvements each time we go back. The elevators are still slow, but the pools and bar have been upgraded. The beach is nice, but if you have to rent chairs be prepared to pay dearly ($40/day). Check in and front desk hours are odd and difficult to match with. After... More

I will NOT be coming back do to bad hospitality and elevators. But granted the rooms were amazing and the views were so nice. But everytime we leave the condo its just ridiculous. We wait 20 to 30 minutes for a elevator. then every where we go the security guards were all over our butts. Then we rented scooters and... More

This hotel looked nice in the pictures AND was recommended by Delta Airlines (shame on you Delta). It is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. There is no reception desk. You talk into a dirty phone that's in a dirt box near the front of the hotel in the pitch black of night where the woman on the other... More

We decided to take a spur of the moment weekend trip from sc ( 8 hour drive). We were happy when they let us check in early with no hassles so we could rest a while. The building is showing some age but to be far they have notices posted saying that painting is in progress. But honestly for the... More

Tidewater Beach Resort was great! We only stayed 2 nights to end our vacation, but if we'd known it was going to be a great place to stay we would have booked for more nights! Condo was clean and beautiful views of the sunrise and East side of the beach. Guest services were great and very friendly. Couldn't check in... More

Check-in is after, but we arrived early since we slept over in Tallahassee. Expected trouble because of the early xheck-in, but there was NO problem. We were told some rooms were available, courteous staff(all that we met), property is well maintained. Have to park across the street, but there is a gated garage and a walk way from the garage...

My family traveled here for Spring Break, and chose this hotel due to it's proximity to the beach and TripAdvisor ratings! The hotel also turned out to be in walking distance to Pier Park shopping center, which was great. We stayed in a unit on the 30th floor, and the view was amazing! The only problem with being up that... More

Stayed here April 18-24 2015 and rented a 2 bedroom (plus bunk beds) 3 bath on the 19th floor via VRBO 298308. Room 1914. Place is in a great location and close to stuff like pier park, about 1/2 mile down the road, which we walked to every night while we were there for dinner and shopping. There is also... More
